Laszlo Bock

Laszlo Bock believes that giving people freedom and supplementing our instincts with hard science are steps on the path to making work meaningful and people happy. After working at McKinsey and General Electric (GE), Laszlo Bock spent 10 years as Google’s senior vice president of People Operations, with responsibility for attracting, developing, retaining, and delighting “Googlers.” During his tenure, Google received over 100 awards as an employer of choice. He told us about non-stop recruiting, improving training while cutting costs, and a very simple management rule. At the center of it all is an employee with power—and responsibility.
